Spring break! I hope everyone is having a chance to enjoy the lovely weather.
Spring is a wonderful time to reflect on new growth: tiny leaves coming to life after winter, flowers starting to bloom, and little birds building nests. It is all happening around us.
Growth is happening with the youth we work with as well. A child says “thank you” after several years of not seeming to notice. A teen sees the example being set by his mentor and chooses a different path from the one he is on. A girl who doesn’t know what a hobby is starts to find pleasure in learning a new thing.
All these are little signs but ones that can reap great rewards as mentors continue to model what a kind, faithful friend is all about. Thank you for being there for the children.
You are a blessing!
